Writing the Country

The prairie will lie down for you
some foreplay may be required

The stone of the shield will never yield

The bush combs itself 
over the creek
but you know it is but hide and seek

The stone of the shield will never yield

The eyes of the lakes
will return you blue for blue

The stone of the shield will never yield

The Canadian Shield is a plateau that covers approximately half of Canada, as well as most of Greenland and a portion of the northern United States. It is the oldest part of the North American plate and the largest formation of exposed Precambrian rock in the world https://www.reference.com/science/canadian-shield-dbf9122ad81cba72
